Combining the pulsing electronics of industrial with a modern aggression and edge, KISSING CANDICE’s new single, “Raise Her,” takes the band’s horrific force to a new level.
“‘Raise Her’ is a complete serotonin overload, saturated in fetishism in all respects,” says guitarist Dreamer. “The song explores and exploits the different and varied ways humans tend to indulge themselves in whatever gets them off. This could include sexual/sensual things, all the way to having power and control and even extreme fetishism which includes violence, blood and pain.”
The video for the track, via Knotfest at https://knotfest.com/premiere-industrial-metal-horde-kissing-candice-unveil-the-ultra-provocative-visual-for-raise-her/ (WARNING: EXPLICIT), is equally indulgent and not for the faint of heart. “Sexy, creepy, uncomfortable and just good old fashioned WEIRD!” vocalist Joey aka Aunt Donna describes it. “Director Tom Flynn and myself really pushed the visual of this video as far as we could go without crossing that line. I want people to watch this music video and walk away saying, ‘What the hell was that!?!? I like it.’”
“Raise Her” was made available as a single last Friday, February 19 via all streaming services.
Started as a mere vision in early 2012, New York’s KISSING CANDICE went on to fully realize their musical and visual concepts through material released with both Victory Records and Stay Sick Recordings. And supported on tours like the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival, Mushroomhead, and many more!
In February 2020, KISSING CANDICE returned to the studio with producer Zach Jones to begin work on their upcoming full-length. With no label behind them at the time, the band emptied their own pockets along with turning to their fans for a perk packed crowd-funding campaign. Despite a lack of touring, KISSING CANDICE is working around the clock to roll out the new album via ZOID Entertainment/INgrooves, which will surely decimate the metal world.
